TVS Akula 310 concept was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier last year. A fully faired sports bike which embodies TVS’ rich racing heritage, Akula 310 is expected to be launched by July 2017. When launched, we expect it to be named as the Apache 300.
The company has began sending the bike to dealers for training purpose. During one such outing, the bike was spotted by XBhp and the images reveal never before seen close-up shots of production ready TVS Akula 310. These new spy shots reveal the instrument cluster in detail for the first time. The fully digital IC is completely new, and is not the same unit which is installed on the BMW G310R.
Other features on offer incldue USD front fork, rear monoshock, split seats, larger fuel tank, disc brakes, projector lamps, LED taillgihts, LED side blinkers, LED DRLs, windscreen (white for blue colour bike and black for matte black bike), clip-on handlebars, full fairing, and a fully digital instrument cluster. It is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled petrol engine develpoed by BMW Motorrad. This engine will offer 34 hp peak power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm torque at 7,500 rpm mated to a 6 speed manual transmission.
This is the same engine that also powers BMW G 310 R motorcycle revealed last year. Estimates reveal that this engine will offer 36 kmpl mileage on the Akula 310 sportsbike while pricing will be around INR 2.2 lakhs.
